    Monterey Public Beta on Asus X99 Deluxe II

    Can confirm that Sleep is no longer working in Catalina, though Monterey is getting better and better and I may be leaving Catalina in the past. Has anyone had trouble installing the latest beta 9? With the changes in OC 0.7.4 to Secure Boot, I am able to get OTA updates again, but when I boot...

    Monterey Public Beta on Asus X99 Deluxe II

    Unsure if there are others with the Asus X99 Deluxe/U3.1, but the only difference appears to be small changes in the USB port layout. My system does *not* utilize the add-in USB 3.1 card that comes with this board. The attached table fixes the "Internal" layout flag for the Bluetooth controller...

    Monterey Public Beta on Asus X99 Deluxe II

    Thank you - I made that realization shortly after posting yesterday and have swapped as well. I have an Asus X99 Deluxe/U3.1 and the board is nearly identical to the Deluxe II this was written for. I hope I can continue to test and assist to keep our towers running well for years to come.

    Monterey Public Beta on Asus X99 Deluxe II

    I've transitioned my hand built EFI to this one (with tweaks) and I cannot believe how many sensors this copy of FakeSMC has... Unbelievable what I have been missing! Additionally - previously, I was using CpuTscSync.kext for my Xeon E5-2697v3, but this calls for TscAdjustReset (with mod to 27...

    [Guide] Dell XPS 9560 Big Sur OpenCore

    Yes, these are the settings I modified. They perform the same undervolt mods that VoltageShift does, but at a BIOS level rather than at an OS level. This prevents us from having to run software to handle this and does this across all OS's, rather than having to configure it for each OS. Core...

    [Guide] Dell XPS 9560 Big Sur OpenCore

    A non-insignificant issue here, especially with thermals, is the inability to load VoltageShift with SIP enabled. Before Catalina and our transition to OpenCore, VoltageShift would keep my CPU almost 10C cooler and therefore, fans quieter. There are some rumblings across the internet that this...

    @bustra - very odd behavior. I have just moved, so my TB16 is in a box... somewhere... but I will see if I can dig it out and see what I can get working. ~ For those of you playing along at home, OC 0.7.0 is safe to update, as well as kexts. Follow the normal update procedure for OC.

    How are you connecting the TB16 dock? For me, the dock doesn't work correctly unless it is already plugged in at the time of boot up. My USB ports seem to work, but I have my ports defined by SSDT (see last page) as opposed to a kext (in the first post and config.)

    Good to hear the Sinetek driver has come a long way. Perhaps I will reinstall, I was getting KPs a while ago, but I see there have been several revisions since. But yes - with OC, a fantastic daily driver. Arguably the best MacBook I've ever owned.

    [Guide] Dell XPS 9560 Big Sur OpenCore

    For those of you wishing to update, a simple run through the upgrade procedure seems to work as expected, and kext updates are stable for us - no significant changes necessary. Depending on how old of a revision you are updating from, you may need to replace your "Resources" folder with the...

    I am using a 14,3 system definition and have my USB ports defined by SSDT instead of kext, see attached.

    There are alternate threads for the 9550. I personally own a Precision 5510 (same machine, Quadro GPU instead of Geforce) and it runs just as well as my 9560. I would not modify this config, though - best to follow alternate guides. There are enough differences between the machines that it makes...

    I've been avoiding updating VoodooPS2Controller due to the default Command / Option swap. I see the SSDT to re-enable the swap in the docs, but I don't see this implemented in the sample config. How is everyone achieving this?

    Here's a weird one - does anyone else see any kind of backlight flicker while watching videos fullscreen on a 4K internal display? I had it on Catalina and tested it again on Big Sur. Hoping it's not a hardware failure, but it only seems to occur when playing a video.

    FYI - If you dual boot Windows 10 like I do, Dell BIOS updates are being pushed through Windows Update now. You can disable package-based BIOS updates in the UEFI under Security > UEFI Capsule Firmware Updates. You'll want to UNCHECK this to prevent Windows from automatically updating your BIOS...
